Seaboard "New Horizons" shows Birmingham
This film is a publicity firm from SAL RR made in 1948. The aspect that I enjoyed is film of the iron and steel industry in Birmingham showing Ensley Steel Works and Red Mountain iron ore mines in operation. To my knowledge there is very little film of Red Mtn iron ore mines in existence so this is a valuable piece of history

If it hadn't been for cotton eyed joe..
Sort of okay glimpse into the deeeeeeep south industry of today, which includes tobacco, fruit, forestry, and of course, cotton. While this film doesn't imply that they'd rather forget Southern customs, it sure implies that they'd rather be known for other industries as well. Pretty good color photography abounds, but while the new industry is good to see, I sort of did like the "Old South" shots (as it's something I normally do not get to see)
